The main rule for an installation is first and foremost to arrange a separate compressor central plant. Experience dictates that centralization is preferable, regardless of industry. Among other things, it provides improved operating economy, a better-designed compressed air system, service and user friendliness, protection against unauthorized access, proper noise control and simpler possibilities for controlled ventilation.
Secondly, a separate area in a building that is used for other purposes can be used for the compressor installation. Certain risks and inconveniences should be accounted for with this type of installation, for example: disturbance due to noise or the compressor's ventilation requirements, physical risks and/or overheating risks, drainage for condensation, hazardous surroundings e.g. dust or inflammable substances, aggressive substances in the air, space requirements for future expansion and accessibility for service.
However, installation in a workshop or warehouse can facilitate the installations for energy recovery. If there are no facilities available for installing the compressor indoors, it may also be installed outdoors, under a roof. In this case, certain issues must be taken into consideration: the risk of freezing for condensation pockets and discharges, rain and snow protection for the air intake opening, suction inlet and ventilation, required solid, flat foundation (asphalt, concrete slab or a flattened bed of shingle), the risk of dust, inflammable or aggressive substances and protection against unauthorized access.
As Well as there are four Main Aspects you should consider when Setting up your Air Compressor
The compressed air plant should be installed to facilitate distribution system routing in large installations with long piping.
Normally only a flat floor of sufficient weight capacity is required to set up the compressor plant.
The compressor's intake air must be clean and free of solid and gaseous contamination
Heat in the compressor room is generated from all compressors. This heat is let off by ventilating the compressor room. The quantity of ventilation air is determined by the size of the compressor and whether it is air- or water-cooled.
